Into the Canyon

I'm still playing around with these homemade panels. This time I applied the ground with a foam brush for less texture. I think I like it better with a slightly smoother surface.

Thanks for looking...

Re: Into the Canyon

hello
nice olour contrasts with the large masses , and not forced .

the more uniform coverage is kinda a ' set and forget ' .

my exploration with texture has been ' rottenstone ' = a paint/masonry additive .
- probably a 1200 grit , or finer .
the tactile sense is subtle , but recognizable with hard/medium sticks ,
and the pigment release is just a bit sharper .
> the drawback is that because it is so fine , you need to have controlled ventilation with the prep .

Ed

Very nice painting. I also liked the painting you posted on, I believe the 10th. Haven't been on the site in a few days and trying to catch up. Pam

Re: Into the Canyon

Randy,

Yes, I like this better too. The texture doesn't take over. Having said all of what has been offered, I would venture that seeing these in person might be a very different experience.
So, grain of salt.
The bottom line is that your really good!

Re: Into the Canyon

As always, your control of values make for beautiful lighting. This reminds me of an area in the Capitol Reef National Park. Nicely done, Randy!

Re: Into the Canyon

I really like the way the road leads us from the hot sun to a respite in the cooler shadows. Beautiful.
